Engineers in Real Life: An Engineering Career Fair

Engage with local-area students to inspire future engineers and share your experiences!

Saturday, February 1, 2020

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Clear Lake High School

Clear Lake High School’s PTA is hosting “Engineers in Real Life”, an exciting, half-day career fair to give local-area students a glimpse of the cool projects engineers contribute to! This invitation is open to all engineering disciplines.

Students will learn the answers to the questions:

  • What does it mean to be an engineer?
  • What do engineers do?
  • What does it take to be an engineer?
  • What types of engineers are there?

Check out pictures from last year’s successful event here.

Community college to elementary students from public, private or home school learning environments are all welcome to this free event.

Get involved.

Let us continue to provide invaluable support to the youth and the future of STEM!

The Moon: Looking Back and Looking Forward
Fifty years after the historic first landing of human explorers on the Moon, NASA astronaut and planetary scientist Dr. Stanley G. Love will review the motivations and accomplishments of the Apollo program, present an overview of NASA’s plans to return human explorers to the Moon’s surface in the next few years, and discuss what those explorers might do there after they land and plant the flag. Despite an impression that we’ve “been there and done that” with regard to our nearest celestial neighbor, the Moon offers much more than opportunities to build national prestige. It is a treasure trove of scientific and economic riches that we’ve only just begun to open. We hope you can join the discussion and learn about the amazing future that awaits us on the Moon
